    Re: Which exams should engineers give to join Air Force?

    Age limit criteria to join Navy in many different branches :-

    Age limit criteria and Education Qualification is the essential component of Navy . There is no fees structure for Navy jobs.It is a government jobs and no requirement to pay any fees in this field.

    But Indian Navy provide excellent salary package after selection in Indian Navy and Army.

    And also much more facilities like apartment,Medical check up and transportation facility provide free of cost.

    From my view any government organization provide better facilities rather than private organization.

    I THINK N.D.A. ENTRANCE EXAM IS BEST OPTION FOR 12th PASSED STUDENT/APPEARING STUDENT.AGE LIMIT IS 16-19. IN CASE OF GRADUATE STUDENT THEY FILL UP FORM OF C.D.S.(COMMON DEFENCE ACADEME).THIS N.D.A. AND C.D.S. EXAM HELD BY U.P.S.C. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ENTRANCE EXAM THEN YOU GO TO THE WEBSITE ( www.upsconline.nic.in). BEST OF LUCK.
